Mission, Vision & Guiding Values

Mission

The mission of the IRH is to improve the health of communities through research, education, and service.

Vision

Our programs increase access to healthcare; enhance quality of care and health outcomes; improve the professional quality of life for providers; and seek to close the gap in health disparities— particularly among rural populations— by enhancing access to technology, endorsing a diversity of ideas, and encouraging cultural competency.
